I recently finished making a set of carbide tools thanks to Capt. Eddie’s cutters and my oak and walnut turned handles. It was a quick and fun project and the great thing is I’ve got three new tools for my lathe and the work great. There are lots of great videos on Youtube on making these. Capt. Eddie’s are a good starting point for all things round. I appreciated talking to him the day I ordered the cutters.

I agree with you about Capt Eddie. Nice guy and very helpful. In fact I need to order some more cutters for my tools. Thanks for the reminder

Oh yeah…. Nice job on the tools ! Are you using aluminum stock too?

Thanks, Joe. No, that is steel stock I got at a local trailer mfg here in town. Cost all of $2 for 3 feet of it.

Nice work, always better to have your own handmade handle.
